A rare chance to see OUT 1 in November courtesy of Badlands Collective

Badlands Collective are at it again, in possible the most ambitious (and length) repertory screening event ever seen in the capital.

Jacques Rivette's OUT 1, released in 1971, is a staggering 773 mins long. That is not a typo. It was originally constructed as eight feature length episodes which run over almost thirteen hours, it was originally screened just once in its original cut in 1971, with rare subsequent screenings in the ’90s and ’00s.

The BC will be screening it over the 28th and 29th November with regularly scheduled breaks. Details on their website.

They also have provided a handy link giving background on the reputation of the film
